Re: She Preached The Word

But I love the idea that my daughter is growing up accepting that women can "preach the word" - that they are qualified to do so. Not really a new idea though. Female preachers go back to the 18th century. Earlier if you count Joan of Arc. Our main church in this country has been ordaining women si...

Re: Name of The Church - Version 152

I maybe shouldn't but I started laughing inwardly once when a new member started bearing his testimony of the Church of Mormon and how he believed our bishop was a true prophet. He had what we charitably call learning difficulties and is a bit of a character. Going back a few years right enough... ...

Re: The Bay of a Thousand Names

I think we all try and beat eternity. I wonder if that's partly why we sent out the Voyager space probe... that it may well outlast the human race and that was the real deal, not contacting ET. You see cave art and there are all those hand prints stenciled on the wall... and I wonder what their live...

Re: Very good post about "what I wish Mormons knew about those that leave"

To the remainers, I'd like to point out far fewer people leave because of being offended by someone than you think. To the hardcore exmormons, I'd like to point out far fewer people leave because of reading up about history than you think. To both of them I'd suggest the evidence points towards most...
